Sacred Water

Director:Olivier Jourdain


Run time:55min


The documentary Sacred Water throws itself without reservation into the contemporary culture of Rwanda, in the most intimate way possible: through sex and exploring in particular the female ejaculation. Keep calm: this is not pornography nor an exploitative film. It is simply the re-discovery of a culture and heritage that we know very little about. This feature documentary by the Belgian director Olivier Jourdain was one of the great hits of the last edition of idfa in Amsterdam, the great Mecca of documentary filmmaking.
